ThunderBay 4, OWC's flagship 4-bay RAID ready powerhouse is bigger and faster than ever before. Now with the unbelievable performance of Thunderbolt 3 — up to 1527MB/s sustained performance1 — it's the ultimate workhorse external storage solution.
Not only faster, the new ThunderBay 4 Thunderbolt 3 is now natively compatible with both 2.5" and 3.5" drives, and with a redesigned chassis, it's even cooler and quieter too.
Designed with performance in mind and engineered to harness the power of Thunderbolt 3, ThunderBay 4 is an incredibly flexible external solution with the throughput to support multi-stream compressed 4K video and other bandwidth-intensive operations.
Highly configurable to perfectly match your performance needs. Use each drive independently, or in the RAID configuration of your choice for the optimal balance of performance and data-redundancy. Get the most out of your storage, take the brakes off your workflow, and do more with a ThunderBay 4.
Experience the most advanced software RAID available with the ThunderBay 4 RAID 5 Edition. Empower your workflow with up to 35% faster RAID 5 performance and exponentially faster rebuild times than comparable hardware RAID arrays.
SoftRAID combines the advanced RAID modes, superior performance, comprehensive, real-time disk monitoring, e-mail notification, and fast rebuild capabilities that only software RAID can deliver.
Each ThunderBay 4 undergoes OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure prior to shipping. This ensures your ThunderBay 4 arrives operating properly, ready for demanding use.
You can rely on OWC's award-winning U.S.-based support for the ThunderBay 4 solution. Plus, ThunderBay 4 comes with 2 Year OWC Limited Warranty.
Built on OWC's time-tested enclosure cooling technology, ThunderBay 4 utilizes an open "flow-thru" vented design with an oversized 92 mm, low-turbulence, noise-quieting fan to keep the drives running cool and reliably.
Daisy-chain up to six ThunderBay 4s for massive storage capabilities and increased performance, or connect multiple ThunderBay 4s to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports to achieve exponential speed capabilities.
ThunderBay 4's drive isolating design reduces sonic resonance, and is aided by over-sized, rugged, vibration-absorbing, non-skid feet.
Dual Thunderbolt ports let you connect the display of your choice that your computer can support, including 4K displays.
ThunderBay 4 comes with a 2.0 meter certified OWC Thunderbolt 3 cable, with other lengths from 0.5 meter to 2.0 meters available separately.
